I don't have any experience with typical APs, just atypical APs; but wanted to say hi...

Thanks Dubious66.

I have to do a little more research on the difference between atypical antipsychotics and typical ones. Ive been on the atypical ones before but never a typical one.

The typical ones are the first generation. You might find this Wikipedia article helpful: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atypical_antipsychotic

Inky, why did your Pdoc Rx this particular med for you? Do you know?

Hey Mocha,

I was on Zyprexa to deal with my hallucinations and racing thoughts etc, and ive been trying to get off it for a long time due to the terrible weight gain that i get from it. Long story short it took months to be able to see a pdoc who was willing to treat me and on my first session with the guy i told him all my concerns and he was able to switch me to loxapine to replace the zyprexa, to deal with my hallucinations and racing thoughts etc. So far its helping, im just on a tiny dose though so hopefully this will be the one for me in addition to my other medicaiton.

What made you ask? (totally fine that you did i was just wondering)
have a great day,
inky
